Approximately 28" tall.
Her head has a layer of wax over composition.

Overall some spider lines.....
A crack in wax from corner of one eye...and a X crack in wax on forehead ending in one brow. Another on opposite temple A slightly darkened spot on forehead where something melted wax and left a crater and discolor.

 Overall age wear and discolor of wax.  The wax is stable.
Body may have been recovered many years ago......heavy muslin?......age stains.

   It appears to be firmly stuffed kapok .....not sawdust.
Arms are not as firm which made me think this is an old recover.
Composition arms and legs are heavy.  There is some chipping of "skin" on one hand. See photos.

 Whatever the age of body recover......it is strong and is not going to deteriorate any time soon.

Her gown is a vintage, well made taffeta with velvet trim.
There is a bustle.  I am guessing gown was constructed in 1950's.......just a guess.
 Good condition but need a few stitches to secure seam separation in just a few places.

She wears eyelet slip and matching pantaloons.......and an extra padded slip that is a late addition.
 Velvet on skirt hem has faded evenly.

Her wig is older mohair......probably same era as dress.......and has two original gold color barrettes securing sides.
Her shoes are bad.....no soles.......some tears......no socks. Displays very well.
Nice....but not for the perfectionist.
